For those who were wondering, this fab head band tutorial is from kcquilts. I have used it before and return to it again and again. Easy Peasy and quick to make.
. . . AND, I put the question "out there" yesterday about these little blighters, and BINGO! Someone sent me the answer. Thanks Melanie! You are so clever. I have done a search and am sure she is right. It is a Peppered Moth - Biston Betularia. I have caught more of them this morning nibbling on my plants.
It's been dreadfully hot here and strong winds have done some damage, however, we had a calm day yesterday and the roses were happy. They are such strong survivors in the heat and dry, and just SO beautiful.
. . . and "Dearest"
